I think I’ve already posted most of the funny encounters a week ago, there have been a few more since then:
One guard in my building always says stupid/funny stuff. In fact my friends always get a kick out of how ridiculous and unprofessional my guards are.
“Hey, Numba 1 (he doesn’t know my name and this is like one phrase in English he knows). Do you believe in Jesus?”
“No I don’t.” I say.
“I’m Buddhist” he says and walks off.
I then have another guard tell me in English how he is a born again Christian after having a faith healing ceremony designed for children.
I was left thinking ‘what the fuck?’ about this whole situation.
The rest of the week has just been the usual, some random Taiwanese man commenting that it is very enjoyable to smoke cigarettes in the sun (cool dude), Old ladies looking in my shopping cart (oh thats what foreigners eat), getting asked if I am married and then telling me to find a Taiwanese girl and people commenting on why I am sweating (again, it’s fucking hot!). Just the usual comments that make Taiwan weird/funny.
